Star actors in the popular British 'Carry On' screen farces Sid James and Kenneth Williams have disliked each other since they acted on radio in the mid-1950s. Ten years later the feud still continues. Chirpy young actress Barbara Windsor arrives to appear in the series and Sid, though married, pursues her. Believing that he will be satisfied after a one night stand Barbara goes with him but this is the start of an affair which will last until the mid 1970s, shortly before Sid's death whilst touring in a play. After Sid's demise Kenneth assures Barbara that she was not responsible and she, in turn, encourages him to enjoy life more.

Did You Know?
Kenneth Williams, while reviewing Carry on Spying
in an early scene, suggests that he hasn't been in a state of sexual arousal since "Jim Dale went down the stairs on that hospital trolley". This scene is supposedly contemporaneous with the filming of Carry on Cleo
, but the scene Williams mentions of Jim Dale
going down stairs was in Carry on Again Doctor
, filmed in 1969. See more
